particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't believe that this president really is willing to follow through on the use of force because they think that his head is still looking back at iraq. someone who spoke to him recently told me a few days ago that he has said about syria, words to the effect of "i know how i get in. tell me how i get out. i don't know how to get out." he is still thinking of what we got into unexpectedly in iraq, the unintended consequences of american action. it's a defining thing for him. chris: a sense of wisdom. let me ask you about this column. in terms of republican politics, and speak for that if you can, that they know that george w bush is basically identified completely with the iraq war. is the republican party that can speak for it, are they basically war averse now? >> i think they would hesitate to say, i'm a spokesperson for the republican par
if they attack us hear we don't have the right to bear arms under the obama administration. >> we need more rust form policy we need assault weapons. >> you don't think so? okay. all right. >> i agree with angela. >> thank you, james. lou: i agree with both of you. i don't see how you reconcile that. if you for your terrorism we're told by homeland security that there are already agents of al qaeda working. why would you not want to make certainall citizens were armed and prepared? that would be the same rights of israelis citizens. >> quite a number of terrorist attacks in israel. lou: i do suggesting we should have lesser rights? >> we are both stable democracies. lou: net was not the question. should we have to commend the question was the same. >> budget israelis have uzi. >> bet stricter than chicago. >> boom. lou: you are taking up my puppy time. up next a couple of very cute friends join us to celebrate national puppy day. i love those puppies. next. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help sign
, for upholding the jewish people's rights to a jewish state. >> president obama in israel -- the chill is gone. >> i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations. >> rand paul, the man with a plan. >> i call the plan trust but verify. >> republicans look at what went wrong in 2012. >> when republicans lost in november, it was a wake-up call. >> the war in iraq 10 years later, the budget that refuses to die. >> our budget plan reduces the deficit without raising taxes. >> the republican plan is the same baby with a new diaper. >> we know that until recently president obama and israeli prime minister netanyahu enjoyed what can be politely described as a somewhat strained relationship. on april 7 of last year, the "new york times" reported benjamin netanyahu and mitt romney enjoyed a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of militar
this to the right conclusion. >> small boots, special capabilities. president obama has called this a game changer. if chemical weapons are involved, he calls this a game changer. but he said, mr. chairman, that he would bring in the international community, which doesn't sound like aggressive american action. in your judgment, is the president behind the eight ball on this story? >> you have 70,000 dead. the situation there has deteriorated badly. listen, i think we are behind the eight ball. when the opposition initially tells the secretary of state of the united states we're not interested in a meeting, we've got to a huge problem. they're not buying into this political coalition that's being plopped on folks that are really fighting on the ground. thats a problem. if you really believe in a diplomatic solution, you have to have credibility. we can stop the scud missiles from striking civilians. we ought to do that. we can render their ability to deliver chemical weapons useless. we ought to do that. and so we have these special capabilities that can project power without being at the front end
saying it's the right thing to do. >>> president obama will host a seder dinner. he became the first sitting president to hold seder at the executive mansion back in 2009. >>> oscar de la renta is not worried about having michelle obama on his list. he's dressed first ladies back to jackie kennedy but the current first isn't one of his favorites. it's the everyday woman on the street who influences today's fashions and not a movie star or mrs. obama. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. very interesting. >> turn her down -- could you please -- >> you have to respect him because so many times these designers go after those celebs, right. he says, forget bit. i want the everyday person. >> i'm rich enough. i don't need you. we'll see. >> the president may have to shovel the walk this morning at the white house. it's snowing pretty good in d.c. and in maryland, it's already beginning to accumulate on the grassy surfaces. these pictures is what happened yesterday. this was st. louis. the largest snowstorm in the last 30 years, it was 1982 since you had a storm this big. 12 inc
candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the the right of paul ryan on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum. this left/right spectrum doesn't always work for people. i think because of some of that confusion it shows that someone like myself i think could appeal to young people independents and moderates because many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy. there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly fit in the left/right paradigm that i think would help because we are not the doing well in a lot of the purple and blue states so we do need a candidate that would appeal across the left/right paradigm. >> chris: we have about 30 seconds left. your budget which would balance the budget your plan would balance the budget in five years. paul ryan's which has come under attack for balancing it in ten years. you introduced it three consecutive years if and the most votes was this weekend when you got 18. isn't that out o of the mai
. that is what i spend most of my time stressing. could obama do without congressional support right now? >> i think in many ways he could initiate a public employment program. i think it is long overdue that he find all the ways available to him to say what roosevelt said. not that roosevelt did everything correctly and that he is a genius or any of that, but to take some lessons from those people in our country before we took steps that were successful. >> roosevelt did not plan on doing this when he first took office. >> absolutely. he had pressure from below. afl-cio. >> right. organizelist parties millions of americans into unions who had never joined a union before. they push from below and a very powerful way. they changed mr. roosevelt, showing politicians is subject to pressure from below can change, sam lessig of cyprus has taught us yet again. my response is, learn from that. roosevelt went on to the radio and the merit -- when on the radio and said, it the private sector cannot or will not provide work for the millions of americans that need and want to work, then it is my job as p
in determining whether the connecticut general assembly will pass legislation restricting your gun rights. >> and president obama is weighing in, too, using his weekly radio address to push a ban on assault weapons, a limit on the size of ammunition magazines, and stepped-up background checks. >> they're supported by a majority of the american people, and i urge the senate and the house to give each of them a vote. >> still, the chief reason we're seeing so much activity right now is that gun control measures appear to be in legislative trouble. senate majority leader harry reid has frankly admitted he doesn't have the votes for a assault weapons ban and support for other legislation also appears shaky. >> it only has been three months since the newtown massacre. i mean, there was so much political support and really a rallying cry after that for stricter gun control measures. why does the political support seem so shaky right now, i guess is the question. >> well, there's two reasons. one is that time has passed. the polls have eroded somewhat. they're still generally in favor of the gun
the money. that's what they're doing. all right, nicole, thank you very much. the dow is up 19 in the early going. >> let's move on to washington, and president obama expected to sign a budget this week, and pretty good news for investors this is not what he wanted. automatic spending cuts stay in place. new spending on roads and bridges and universal pre-school. all that have off the table. new tax increases nowhere to be found and all of this coming out on a friday afternoon. long after everybody went home for the weekend, and hardly the market obama victory. and that you can about that more. and now this. and the third anniversary of the signing of obamacare in law and the senate overwhelmingly to repeal the tax on medical devices and higher insurance premiums next year. and "varney & company" says this law looks like it's unravelling. is that wishful thinking? in our next hour, one of the foremost authorities and critics of obamacare will answer that question, are we stuck with it? i think you're going to like her answer to this one coming up later. now, cyprus, they have seized private
number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to look for ways to expand the party? who it attracts? >> that is a big part of it. i commend the chairman. it was a very thoughtful, thorough report. it has some good recommendations. that is one of them. the fact is the obama campaign and the democrats did a good job of having people out there. they did that better than we did. they had a presence in all communities you had that you needed to turn out, to win. we need to be in the community year round, cycle through cycle, not just in the last three months of an election. having storefront campaign headquarte
. these cases could literally transform the landscape of equal rights in this country. earlier today, president obama addressed a naturalization ceremony for new citizens challenging lawmakers to, quote, have courage when the debate resumes next month. perhaps the most volatile issue facing lawmakers right now, the debate over proposed new gun safety measures. this weekend marked 100 days since the sandy hook elementary school massacre, and gun reform advocates are clearly frustrated with the lack of action from lawmakers. organizers are planning a day of action this thursday with events aimed at reducing gun violence across the country. with the future of an assault weapons ban hanging in the balance, and the future of background checks also uncertain, this week new york mayor michael bloomberg's group, mayors against illegal guns, announced it will shell out $12 million on a tv ad campaign in 13 states. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment, and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights come responsibilities. that's why i support comprehen

's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, finishing the job. president obama is back on u.s. soil fresh from his well-received trip to the middle east and today he jumped right back into the fight for second-term agenda, demanding that congress take action on immigration. >> we've taken real action from congress, bipartisan groups in the house and senate, working to tackle this challenge. i applaud them for that. we are making progress but we've got to finish the job because this issue is not new. emp pretty much knows what is broken. everybody knows how to fix it. we've all proposed solutions and we've got a lot of white papers and studies. we just at this point have got to work up the political courage to do what is required to be done. >> political courage. the president was talking about immigration and we're going to get into that a little later in the show. but he also could have been talking about another big issue where we're seeing momentum. gun control. today

like syria. >> that's the question right now. really the challenge for secretary kerry is not only diplomacy with the likes of president karzai but, you know, some real delicate diplomacy back here in washington where by all accounts it is president obama personally who has been the most resistant to increasing the u.s. commitment to aiding the rebels in syria in anyway for a variety of reasons is a very complicated conflict obviously. but, you know, from the sense is that i have, secretary kerry is speaking to some of his credibility in the job and saying we have to offer something more. we have to change our strategy and present something that changes the calculus on the ground in syria or we're not going to breakthrough this. >> ifill: the quick sandals for secretary of states or presidents for decades has been the arab-israeli peace process. do we detect any shifting toward more engagement on the part of the u.s. in that process or is that yet another thankless task waiting for the secretary? >> president obama just made this important trip to israel. i think a very necessary t

: meaning president obama gave to the vice president sort of a stewardship over iraq? >> right, and he made the assumption-- i have it in the book from a transcript-- that maliki would want us to say and that we would have some residual presence. i think-- one thing they found y little bit dismay go is everyone looks at iraq-- 4100 americans died, tens of thousandses were wounded and to just wash your hands saying we went theres because we thought there were w.m.d., and there were not i think is the wrong course. >> rose: john burns was thee. iraqi bureau chief during that war and he and i did 1,000 conversations during that time. john, looking back how do we measure our participation and the toll as well as what it might beth and what implication, if we had not gone. >> well, as one of the reporters who stood on the roof of the palestine hotel and watched that first fiews laid of cruise missiles and bombs on the night of march 19, and saw some of my cloogz whooping and hollering, a sentiment which i could-- i could understand to some extentd because of the ghastliness of saddam's

a lot of trouble from his right about his moderate position on gun issues, that's when they didn't invite him to cpac. people talk about medicaid expansion and the hug with president obama, but people at cpac talked about was the gun control issue, he's too far off the reservation about that. i think it's a sign that if you're a governor of a blue state like new jersey and you're a republican, you need to make some accommodation. >> in pennsylvania, you'll see the southern states isolated on this issue. the southern senators democrats or republicans are going to be increasingly isolated on this issue. if you're in pennsylvania or new jersey, you're going to want to sign on to that. >> we have to take a break. when we come back nothing says procrastination like a good, old-fashioned votvote-a-rama on vacation eve. ♪ i am stuck on band-aid brand ♪ ♪ 'cause germs don't stick on me ♪ [ female announcer ] band-aid brand has quiltvent technology with air channels to let boo boos breathe.

to get right with israeli public opinion. his standing in the polls there has been low and prime minister netanyahu could use obama as a kind of foil for the last four years. i think he clearly achieved that. he had to re-establish the two state solution. democratic israel and democratic palestines and he did not -- he succeeded in doing that. what is still open is can he get these talks going again? richard is right. the short term is about iran and syria, but we have to make some progress and kerry stayed behind trying to get that going. >> more from you two as we move on to other topics later on in the program. thank you both. >>> we now want to turn to the debate over gun safety. mayor michael bloomberg of new york has announce d a big push o put pressure on lawmakers who will will vote on new gun control measures in congress. i discuss that and some other topics including the middle east when i sat down with him this weekend in new york. mr. mayor, welcome back to the program. >> thank you for having me. >> always good to have you. big week in the gun debate. i'll get to that in just
%, more than double, i'm not a math major but i think that's right. conservatives, 10% in '04 -- three times as much. and minorities, 28 -- this is remarkable and i think honestly, barack obama deserves a significant amount of credit for being an african-american president of the united states, supporting same-sex marriage. 28% in 2004. 61% now. alex, these changes, they're not just -- it's not democrats getting more in favor of it. here's the fundamental question. what does your party do? this is what we have been talking about. you have some people saying -- john huntsman, rob portman saying, look, let's get this -- we support gay marriage but ralph reed this is a fundamental principle for our party. what do you do? >> soul-searching in the party right now. but to joel's point earlier, this is very much a generational divide. if you look at evangelical millennials, 64% of evangelical million ennials. if you look at republican million ennials, at 58% support for same-sex marriage. america is changing. >> the number i'm always struck by, "washington post" poll, 1849 self-identified rep

of how this case all got started. you'll recall, suzanne, when president obama was first elected in 2008, you covered that race, he was elected but then proposition 8 also passed in california. and that outlawed the right for same sex couples to marry, took it away from them in that state. and so you have a story that really starts in hollywood with rob rhiner of all people deciding, oh, my god, this can't occur and he and his friends recruiting ted olson and ted olson recruiting david on this case and making it through the california courts. and now to the supreme court. >> yeah. it's a fascinating story. gloria, thank you so much. appreciate it as always. >> sure. >>> the crisis might have been averted, cyprus made a deal for about a $13 billion bailout. that of course should be good news. we'll see if it's good or not. zain asher in new york, zain, take a look at the dow here. i understand it's down. investors not all that happy with the deal. back and forth a little bit. >> i mean, yeah, that seems to be the case. the u.s. stocks here started out strong initially, but they're now low
